ORLANDO, Fla. -- A twin who initially survived after his pregnant mother was fatally shot by his father has died, deputies said.

Jael Boyce was treated at the neonatal intensive care center at Winnie Palmer Hospital, but died Thursday night.

Alexis Boyce, 23, was eight months pregnant with twins when she was shot and killed last week. The other baby did not survive.

Her husband and father of the twins, Michael Boyce, first told investigators his wife had shot herself because she "was depressed over money and really didn't want to have the children." He later admitted to shooting his wife, authorities said.

Michael Boyce is now charged with counts of first-degree murder. He is being held without bond.
